    PES 2010 forgets to innovate, which is especially disappointing considering that defending is as difficult as it was in previous years due to a lack of real control. However, the game has it’s moments of brilliance when you’re on the attack, which saves it from a sub-par grade.

    Unfortunately The Pre-Sequel does not have the rich characters we expect in a Borderlands-game. Going through this adventure with Claptrap is very enjoyable, because of his jokes, but technically it could use some freshening up.

    Everything in this game has been done before, and has been done better. Not having split screen co-op is unforgivable; Inversion seems to be made for playing it with another player next to you. A lot of variation makes the single player experience somewhat decent, but never rises above mediocrity.

    The short length of Wanted: Weapons of Fate is actually its rescue. If the game would have been any longer it would have gotten boring. For that reason Wanted is only recommendable for the most fanatic Wanted fans. Everyone else might give this average shooter a chance when it’s in the discount bin.

    Dead Space 3 has moments in which it is just as exciting and tense as its predecessor and new additions, such as crafting your own weapons, are great. However, the boring human enemies, repetitive encounters with the necromorph, a weak story and the feeling that the game has been stretched, make sure that this trilogy ending doesn’t stack up to the first and second Dead Space.

    Lightning Returns tries to restore the honor of the Final Fantasy franchise as well as being an RPG with modern design sensibilities. Unfortunately, it succeeds in neither. Final Fantasy gameplay elements drown in a mishmash of poor game design and forced choices. This third XIII does have its own charm though. Touching music and the still present FF-magic make Lightning Returns an acceptable RPG.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is not a revolution in movie based games, but it is not a bad effort. It is entertaining to go wild with the Transformers and we love the chaos. However, the game is repetitive and the story isn’t very long.

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is to a certain degree pretty enjoyable but it simply never attempts to try anything special with the universe to which it is connected. It's absolutely not horrible and the true fans will definitely enjoy it but we hope the next game contains a bit more 'magic'.

    Puddle is a decent game with enough variation and challenge, but is too slow to ever really get exciting and uses too much trial and error. This makes the game more frustrating than fun.

    The never-ending repetition of gameplay is a killer for this fun stand-alone add-on. We miss vivid surroundings, awesome level-design and original assignments. Thankfully the powers you are given during your time in this game (like flying and kill demons in a fantastic way) make it still worth while.

    This action game with horror influences made us scream at night. The music and spooky enemies has driven us to a point that we had to switch on all the lights. Once we weren’t scared anymore we saw some things that made are eyebrows go up. The protagonist, Alex, can fight and uses a gun. This takes away a lot of fun that we had during the last Silent Hill. So it is safe to say that it’s a good game, but doesn’t have the ‘wow’ factor.

    Cargo Commander has a special and original setting and some truly creative moments. But the drag sets in way too early and the many bugs and glitches don't make the game anymore fun.

    Kirby's most characteristic skill has been taken away from him, which does not do this game any good. Plus, the beautiful art style and music are not really coming to live on Wii U GamePad. As most Kirby-games, this one is still entertaining and easy accessible, but it could have been much more.

    It’s fun for a few hours, in which chaotic gunfights, funny weapons and a couple creative moments manage to get your attention. However, the game is too shallow to keep your attention for long. Just like its big brother Serious Sam Double D XXL is corny, simple fun, but never anything more.

    After finishing Papa & Yo, we were left with mixed feelings. The game offers a unique emotional experience through the creative fantasy world of Quico, accompanied by great music. But the platforming and puzzling never really gets challenging and the game is filled with bugs and technical issues. This makes Papa & Yo an unique game, but not the game it amazing game it could have been.

    Accessible to all and existing of simplistic gameplay limited to bashing the A button. A lack of story, variety and ability to train your Pokémon, make sure the game never evolves beyond a mediocre, yet sometimes enjoyable, party game.

    Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection is a collection of almost fifty games. Most of them are well worth playing. The nostalgic feeling is great and a lot of bonus material can be unlocked. The only two downsides are that none of the games has an online multiplayer and that half of the games are already downloadable.

    Medal of Honor: Warfighter doesn't live up to its expectations. The single player features six hours of shooting dumb and scripted enemies. Only the chase through Dubai will linger in your mind after you finish the game. The multiplayer has improved thanks to the addition of fire teams, but the indestructibility of environments and a boring unlock system make sure the multiplayer won't rob you of your night's rest.

    Pro Cycling Manager 2010 isn't the best game of the series. It brings little new features to the table, the technical problems of the last games are still there and little effort was put into the database. But at the same time this is a game that will be loved by all cycling fans. Though next year the series really has to make a step forward!

    Afro Samurai stays close to the anime. It has some big flaws, but despite that, the game is still standing. The soundtrack is superb and the slow motion action will keep you entertained.

    The debut of SimBin on the Xbox 360 isn’t that great. The game offers many different remodeling options for your car. You can make it go faster, be stronger and better. But unlike the hit of Kanye West this game isn’t bigger, better or faster. The options are all that there is. Of course is it possible to race on different tracks and change cars, but what else is new. If you really want a good racing game, then this is not the game for you. Race Pro looks like a pro, but handles like a newborn baby that is still eager to learn a lot.

    Age of Mythology: Extended Edition is an excellent strategy game in its core. The scanty treatment it got for this Extended Edition makes this pretty disappointing. A few additions and graphical updates don't justify the high price tag.

    Risen 3: Titan Lords is lucky that it has been released just before the big storm of RPG’s. If the game would’ve been around a little later, it wouldn’t have stood a chance. But aside from all that, Risen 3 isn’t a bad game. There’s lots to do and Piranha Bytes has tried to keep away as much as possible from the word ‘boredom’. Even though the game succeeds in that respect, there are still a lot of shortcomings that are unforgivable these days.

    We had a lot of fun playing the zombie mode with friends, but it was not very different from its predecessors. We liked two out of four maps, but they have a huge disadvantage: you can buy specific maps, but if your friends don't buy them...

    Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD goes far on the scale of Bear Grylis, but doesn’t go far enough when it comes to survival techniques. It’s cool how the ground shakes and paw prints stay visible, but with a wind, sound and sight meter it’s all too simple. The dinosaurs animations are also laughably bad.

    Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility is not the right game for everyone and there are a lot of mistakes that make the game less fun. Loading screens, the missing of voice-overs, repeating gameplay and controls that aren’t that great are examples of that. There is a lot to do on Waffle Island, maybe for weeks or even months!

    F1 2014 does not have any exciting innovations, besides the changes that also happened in the actual teams in real life). The gameplay is flat, the game looks rushed and we can only hope Codemasters will put more effort in F1 2015.
